How we’re different

The Connection was created for people who really want to get in and get vulnerable.

For those who are willing to step outside their comfort zone and take bigger, more aligned action. We are not a quick-fix solution factory or a policy template shop. We are about so much more than simply ticking the boxes and following what one person says you “should” do.

Every business is different and we strive to give our members multiple options and perspectives to choose from along their practice journey. We want you to build a business you love and that gives you everything you need in return.

The seeds for The Connection began with someone very important in my life called Judith. I started my private practice in 2006, just six short weeks after having my first baby. Not only did I have no idea what I was doing, but I also had no idea who or what to ask. I didn’t know what I didn’t know. It was Judith who not only gave me advice, but opened up her diary schedule, shared her pricing, her client forms, and her policies with me. I remember feeling incredibly grateful that she chose community over competition because it meant a greater good for all.

Eight years after my practice began, I started to wonder how other practitioners were coping. I knew I felt lonely along the way and had moments where I wanted to give it all up. I’d ‘wasted’ time doing things the long way round and had failures along the way. But I’d reached a point where the business could run without me, and I was progressing forwards. It wasn’t perfect but it was working.

I wished there was an easier way for practice owners to find the resources and like-minded community they needed to build joyful, sustainable businesses that worked for their life, and not the other way around.

And then I remembered Judith. I thought if she could make things easier simply by sharing a few items in her toolkit, imagine what a community of practitioners with access to everything they needed to develop their optimal private practice could accomplish!

With The Connection, I get to be the Judith in other people’s lives. I’m so proud that along with an ever-growing library of resources and highly-rated programming, The Connection is a place where practice owners are able to show up as themselves to a safe and loving environment to access the knowledge and support that will allow them to build businesses that serve their clients well and leave them feeling fulfilled at the end of the day.

We believe:

You have a choice in how your business runs.

Because it’s not always about ticking the boxes. It’s about the impact you want to make in your life and others’.

Working on your business doesn’t have to be hard.

You can make the changes you need to increase ease and prevent burnout.
